Thank you to all our Library Student Assistants!

The Oviatt Library, also known as the heart of the CSUN campus, has an amazing student workforce dedicated to supporting our operation. Not only do our student employees make use of the Library's resources themselves, but they also help to make these resources available to their fellow students, staff, faculty, and community members. Their smiles and laughter bring joy and great energy to the Library each and every day.

We are proud to virtually present our 2020 Outstanding Student Employees from each department of the Oviatt Library! Congratulations and thank you for all your hard work and dedication to the Library, and perseverance to reach your academic goals. You make us proud!
